Press Release

Overseas trainees must not be discriminated against

On 3 Feb the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) gave almost 70 pharmacy trainees just six weeks’ notice they will not be able to take the March 2021 registration assessment if they are in a country with a time difference greater than five hours from the UK.

We have written to the GPhC to express our deep concern for these trainees and to urge the regulator to urgently reconsider its position. We have highlighted the importance of ensuring these trainees are not discriminated against and are provided equal opportunities to UK-based trainees.
